September Favourites




Oh gaad, September is over! Autumn is here! While most people are probably outside embracing the "fresh" chill in the air in their berry lips and sipping on pumpkin lattes I on the other hand will most probably be hibernating under a duvet for the foreseeable future until summer returns.

With the changes in the weather, my makeup and skincare also changes as my skin needs a lot more moisture. Some of my favourites this month include...

Bath & Body Works A Thousand Wishes Body Cream - This strawberry & champagne scented body cream was a gift from my sister from America! I've never had any Bath & Body Works products before or anything exclusively from America so I was very excited when she brought it back for me. The scent is so strong on this I usually just wear the body cream in place of a perfume or body spray.

Rosie for Autograph Lip Glossy - Developed by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the style of the Rosie for Autograph at M&S collection really reminds me of Charlotte Tilbury packaging - but with a much more affordable price tag! The entire collection is very elegant and I love this sheer, subtle lip pencil for daytime wear.

The Body Shop Down to Earth Eyeshadow Quad - These palettes were launched earlier in the summer and come in five different colour combinations. I chose this neutral grey palette to be used when creating a smokey eye. The pink shimmery shade is also perfect for highlighting the brow bone.

Soap & Glory Body Mist - The original fruity and floral Soap & Glory scent is one of my all-time favourites so I love having it in a handy body spray! I bought it as a set of three containing Mist You Madly, Original Pink and Fruitigo so I leave one in my handbag, one in my bedroom and one in my office drawer so I can smell delicious throughout the day!

Spectrum A01 Brush Up Powder Brush - I am so in love with Spectrum makeup brushes and wish I could get all their collections! If you haven't checked them out yet there are ranges of unicorn-inspired brushes, classic white handled and mermaid-esque styles too.

La Roche Posay Pigmentclar Eyes - An eye cream and a corrector in one, this eye product really reminds me of the Benefit 'Puff Off' eye gel as it has the same metal, slanted applicator for easy application to the eye contour area. It cools and soothes the skin around the eyes as well as brightening to help reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffy bags.

Rodial Airbrush Concealer - The concealer of all concealers, this little compact is a game changer and is above anything I have tried before. The sleek packaging comes with a mirror so it is ideal for on the go coverage. It is highly pigmented and is more like a camouflage.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Foundation - I usually opt for a high-coverage foundation with a matte finish so this foundation was a little different for me but I am so surprised at how much it transformed my skin. This compact comes with a sponge and has a solid to liquid formula to give an even glow quickly and easily. Just one swipe with the sponge makes my skin look flawless! The only negative for me is that you only get 11g of product for £12.99 so it runs out quite quickly!

Caudalie Glycolic Peel Mask - For an instant radiance boost this mask is ideal for anyone with dull or tired skin. While it isn't actually a peeling mask, it works like a scrub for a new skin effect.

Rodial Dragon's Blood Hyaluronic Moisturiser - My skin has become extremely dehydrated recently and no matter how much water I guzzle down my face is still starting to suffer! This moisturiser protects and plumps skin while shielding against environmental damage.

  1. Lovely favourites! That Rosie for Autograph packaging also reminds me of CTs! The Caudalie Peel Mask sounds nice. I'd love to try it!
